I'm a freelance journalist turned editor trying to set up ProsePoint (ie not a programmer). I've managed to get WAMP2 set up and running (much sweat and tears). Also have a little experience with CMS (GetSimple). Could someone please tell me whether Installing PP is a matter of placing it in the www section of my wamp folder and doing some tweaking, or is this going to be another steep learning curve for me? I'm running mySQL 5.1.36, Apache 2.2.11, PHP 5.3.0 in Firefox 3.6.17 on a Windows 7 machine if this helps. Thanks.

Yes, this is normally sufficient.

Thanks, beng. Believe it or
Thanks, beng. Believe it or not I did actually download the manual (I even read it and followed the steps), but still I'm stuck. The story so far: Managed to set up a database in phpMyAdmin. I then decompressed the .tar folder into my www folder under the folder heading 'pp edit', opened my localhost server and clicked on the 'pp edit' folder. According what you say, this should be sufficient, but it's not working... All my other sites open fine, just not this one... The manual assumes a degree of competence with mySQL that I do not have, yet a programmer friend of mine say I don't need all that stuff (maybe something in the manual for dummies like me - with screencaps to light the way?) Thanks.
